Thanks to generous funding by the Arts Council of Wales, this year trac is able to offer a limited number of young people a place at the Big Experiment/Arbrawf Mawr for only £20. If you’re between 14 and 24 you can apply for one of these subsidised places. You may be a musician, dancer, or singer; you may be a professional gigging musician or a student, or still at school. When you apply, you can tell us about your involvement in the folk world.
You’ll have your accommodation and meals provided and can choose which morning class and afternoon workshops you’d like to join. You’ll have the opportunity to spend a folk-soaked weekend with people of all ages, learning new material and new skills.
Depending on your age and skills, you’ll help out with things like leading a slow session, offering an informal afternoon workshop, helping behind the scenes, or sharing your experiences via social media. We’ll expect all our bursary people to contribute some of their time.
Contact us at for a bursary application form where you’ll be able to tell us about yourself and why you’d be a good choice for a bursary place. Looking forward to hearing from you!
This year's Big Experiment / yr Arbrawf Mawr is from 19 - 21 September, on Anglesey, with tutors including Calan's Patrick Rimes and Oli Wilson-Dickson of Jamie Smith's Mabon.
